Publisher's Summary

Cyrus Barker is undoubtedly England's premiere private enquiry agent. With the help of his assistant, Thomas Llewelyn, he's developed an enviable reputation for discreetly solving some of the toughest, most consequential cases in recent history. But one evening in 1888, Robert Anderson, the head of Scotland Yard's Criminal Investigation Department (CID), appears at Barker's office with an offer. A series of murders in the Whitechapel area of London are turning the city upside down, with tremendous pressure being brought to bear on Scotland Yard and the government itself. Barker is to be named temporary envoy to the Royal Family with regard to the case while surreptitiously bringing his investigative skill to the case. With various elements of society, high and low, bringing their own agendas to increasingly shocking murders, Barker and Llewellyn must find and hunt down the century's most notorious killer.
Though the Whitechapel Killer has managed to elude the finest minds of Scotland Yard - and beyond - he's never faced a mind as nimble and a man as skilled as Cyrus Barker. But even Barker's prodigious skills may not be enough to track down a killer in time.

What more can I say? Perhaps PERFECTION!

Would you listen to Anatomy of Evil again? Why?

Yes. I love all the nuances in Will Thomas's series. There are certain writers that go over board describing a scene, sentiment and internal dialog. Not Thomas, he is descriptive enough to pull you in but not drown you in boredom


What did you like best about this story?

How Barker and Llewelyn's relationship and respect for each other is growing and evolving. Barker is tough, no nonsense. Llewelyn is getting tougher but still kind of sweet and naïve.


Have you listened to any of Antony Ferguson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, just this series and although I got some minor characters confused, I could tell the difference between all the main ones. I enjoy his readings.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

What Thomas sees at the end and they just go back to life together as usual. I WAS PROUD FOR HIM!


Any additional comments?

The author's note at the end was very helpful, even though this is a work of fiction. My birthday is July 10th, Hell Bay will be available July 11th, it's my belated gift to myself.
